25 Year old quarterback, Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) was the second member of the San Francisco 49ers to be invited to pose nude for ESPN The Magazine this year. This years winner of the Breakthrough Athlete award did not shy away from the camera and as a result landed the most photos in the Body Issue spread. Kaepernick is known for his voluminous tattoos which he proudly showed off in each shot.

He discussed how despite being judged for them, they are more than ink, they are all things he believes in. The interview goes on a personal level with him discussing how he feels about the public perception of him as a quarterback and how he uses the judgement to propel him to work harder to prove them wrong. He discusses how people should feel proud of being different and not try so hard to fit certain molds society lays out.

“Your mind can make your body do things that you don’t think it can do.” – Colin Kaepernick
